Your True Identity – You are Love
“Nothing real can be threatened,
nothing unreal exists.
Therein lies the peace of God.”
A Course In Miracles, Introduction
What keeps inner peace from being realized is not knowing who/what you are. You are a work of God. You are not your body or the millions of ego thoughts that try to convince you that you are a body, with a certain DNA, subject to germs, illnesses or the particular identity given you at the birth of your body.
Yes, we all have a body but it is not who/what we are. What happens when the body dies? It is gently laid down and your real identity as Spirit continues. The Son of God can never die or be threatened or suffer since as God’s son we inherit all His attributes, being ONE with Him.
A good friend of mine died recently. She had gone through a year of cancer treatment. When she first became sick and the terrible word “cancer” was mentioned by her Doctor, and since we were on similar spiritual paths, I gently reminded her of her true identity and that she was not her body. “I know that!” she said emphatically!
Everyone who knew her from Doctors, radiologists to friends and family were shown by her actions via her great Internal Spirit, that she was indeed not her body. Yes her body was losing its hair and weight and yes it was not very hungry but she did not identify with it as being her self. Her true Self, was Spirit and it was her source of Love.
Love was who she was, no matter if the body was sick or well. Love moved through her and out via her voice and the songs she loved to sing. Loved moved through her to the verbal blessings she gave not just to those whom she knew but it extended to people (strangers) she met in stores or restaurants. She never met a stranger! Her favorite saying was “God Bless your heart”? That was her. She never excluded anyone from her Love, and if she met you, she loved you. just like God!
About a month of two before she left her body, she had to wear a oxygen tube in her nose but did that stop her? Nope! She went everywhere dragging her metal oxygen canister along behind her. Many probably thought “Why doesn’t she just stay home and take it easy?” but she was proving to all that she was not going to let a little thing like a metal canister or cancer stop her from expressing her joy and Love!
She was proving to those who were lucky enough to know her, that she was indeed a great spirit. She left her body with grace and a peace that is not of this world. And sure enough, she proved she was not her body because she left it lying on the bed like a shell and off she flew with her REAL spirit Self to her next lesson or maybe even HOME with God.
The spiritual book A Course In Miracles tells us that we are not our bodies, we are a Spirit Self that will never die because it is invulnerable. The body is useful and we care for it because it is a means of communication, but it is neutral and it is not the teacher….our Spirit Self that resides within us is our teacher and guide.
My friend’s Spirit that inhabited her body taught us all what she and We truly are. She did not slink away to hide the body’s dying process. She shared that it was not who she was…and neither are you.
You are Loved and you are not your Body. You are Spirit, complete and healed and whole. You will never die.
